Longest ice rink goes bankrupt

The longest ice rink in the Netherlands was declared bankrupt by a court in Zwolle on Tuesday, despite having earlier been given a postponement on paying its debts.

The five kilometre long outdoor FlevOnice rink, opened in 2007, but did not attract enough skaters. In addition, the extreme length of the ice rink meant that energy costs involved in spraying water to keep it smooth and thick enough were very high.
